Our 30th annual gala will honor Sheryl Lappin-Levy and Eric Levy ’80, with honorary chairs Aneshia and Mark ’81 Levy, Julie ’84 and Michael ’82 Levy, Sallie Bryan and Andrew Levy ’84, Joshua Levy ‘06, Rebecca Levy, Gail and Andrew ‘80 Merken, and Karen and David Rosenberg.

The evening will feature Netflix original star Justin Willman, a magician and comedian who has cemented himself as one of today’s most prolific entertainers.

This summer, Willman premiered his six-episode magic series on Netflix entitled “Magic For Humans with Justin Willman.” In the series, Willman brings his skills as a magician to the strange and misunderstood subcultures of America, while incorporating his disarming demeanor into street magic and social experiments that will boggle the mind. Upon premiering, the show instantly became one of the most streamed shows on Netflix, with clips from the show garnering over 100 million views to date across social media, even sparking a viral meme. Indiewire called Willman the “perfect magician/hybrid prototype with incredible comedic timing,” and Rotten Tomatoes currently has the show listed at an 88 percent audience approval.

Willman also recently announced his new residency, aptly called “The Magic Show” at the historic and swanky Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. “The Magic Show” is an intimate performance in a hidden, unmarked theater inside the hotel and upon announcing the show, all shows sold out almost immediately. The LA Times exclaimed that Willman is, “A new breed of magician who’s making magic cool again for grown-ups,” and Time Out hailed that his show, “Has to be seen to be disbelieved.” Prior to “Magic for Humans,” Willman was known for his multiple appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “Ellen” and “Conan.” He also performed live at the White House for the Obama family. His debut comedy/magic special “Sleight of Mouth” premiered on Comedy Central in 2015 to rave reviews.

Willman is also a consultant and writer for film/television productions like “America’s Got Talent,” “The Goldbergs” and Disney’s upcoming feature film “Magic Camp.” Justin was born in St. Louis, lives in Los Angeles and does not own a rabbit.
